Evoking a land of gods, giants, elves and dwarves, Myths of the Norsemen will enthrall anyone interested in the legends of the Nordic countries. While more famous gods such as Thor and Loki are included, this retelling also speaks of lesser known deities such as the goddess Ran and Odin's son Hermod. Guerber prose is beautifully clear, evidencing her fame as a writer of histories for children. However, these stories of romance and battle are aimed at anyone wanting an excellent grounding in the Norse myths. A chapter comparing Norse mythology with Greek mythology is a fascinating additional draw to this edition.

A Must and a Classic: This book gives you something other books on Norse mythology do not. This volume contains the most dramatic and compelling retelling of Ragnarok you will ever find. In this book, the myths are partly stories and partly explanations of what stories and their characters mean. So it does not feel that you are actually reading tales. Also, I thought that too much was made of similarities between Greek and Northern mythology at the end of this book. Some comparisons feel artificial and strained. But one should keep in mind that this book was originally written in the 1920s, when linguists were very impressed, some would say 'scandalized, ' by the apparent common origin of most European and some Asian languages. These languages, which today include all but three European languages, belong to the so-called Indo-European or Indo-Aryan group. It does appear that a number of characters in the Greek and Northern myths had a common Indo-Aryan prototype, but as already said, some similarities are farfetched and artificially constructed. The book contains a comprehensive index. This book has got to be one of the most (if not THE most!) informative books on Norse mythology currently available.Each chapter went into great detail about Odin, Thor, Freya, etc. to the point that if you buy just one Norse mythology book for your library, this should be it. There is so much excellent information in this tome. The highest recommendation!!

Differentiated book- It has a historical context with research of the time-Hélène Adeline Guerber (1859-1929), better known as HA Guerber, was a British historian best known for her written stories of Germanic mythology. His best-known work is Myths of the Norsemen: From the Eddas and Sagas. The terms Norse Mythology, Germanic Mythology, and Scandinavian Mythology encompass everything related to the religion, beliefs, and legends of the Germanic Scandinavian peoples, including those who settled in ancient Iceland, Britain, Gaul, and Hispania, where the written sources of Norse mythology. It is the best preserved version of ancient Germanic mythology, common to all Germanic peoples. Germanic mythology, in turn, has evolved from earlier Indo-European mythology. Norse mythology was a collection of beliefs and stories shared by the northern Germanic peoples.It is important to note that this mythology was not shared by the Nordic peoples of the Uralic ethnic group (Finnish, Estonian and Lappish) or Baltic (Lithuanian and Latvian), since they had their own, although similar (especially the Baltics since they are also a branch of Indo-European peoples). It was not a revealed religion, as there was no truth given by the gods to mortals (despite this, Norse mythology has tales of ordinary people who have learned the stories of the gods.

H.A. Guerber's classic collection of Norse Mythology, including the greater and lesser figures of Asgard and Valhalla: Odin, Thor, Loki, and more, as well as monsters of the realms, together with beautiful illustrations.Undoubtedly Northern mythology has exercised a deep influence upon our customs, laws, and language, and there has been, therefore, a great unconscious inspiration flowing from these into English literature. The most distinctive traits of this mythology are a peculiar grim humour, to be found in the religion of no other race, and a dark thread of tragedy which runs throughout the whole woof, and these characteristics, touching both extremes, are writ large over English literature.
